Free Cone Day at Dairy Queen
Free Cone Day is set for the first day of Spring on Monday, March 20 at participating non-mall Dairy Queen and DQ Grill & Chill® locations in the U.S. Fans can enjoy a FREE small vanilla soft-serve cone with the signature curl on top (limit one per customer while supplies last). At the same time, participating locations also will collect donations for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals®.
“Soft serve is part of our brand DNA and the taste is unmatchable. The DQ® soft-serve cone fans have come to love is one of the most recognized treats in the world and is fondly referred to as the ‘cone with the curl on top,’” said Barry Westrum, executive vice president of Marketing for American Dairy Queen Corporation (ADQ). “We can’t think of a better way to show our appreciation to fans, kick off the Spring season and support such an amazing cause than with a Free Cone Day.”
Over the last 32 years, the Dairy Queen system of locations that are franchised by ADQ, a Berkshire Hathaway company, has raised more than $120 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in local communities.
“We’re excited and ready to go for our Third Annual Free Cone Day,” added Westrum. “Free cones have become a fan tradition — they love it. The icing on the cake is supporting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.”
Last year, the Dairy Queen system raised more than $200,000 in one day for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. For more information about the Dairy Queen system, visit DairyQueen.com.
